    I have become obsessed with this quest 🙂

    Franz Hals? One of the other Hals? Rembrandt, Rubens?

    Last night I had a brainstorm and came up with Velasquez — right period, right style — but I couldn’t find the cat in the few paintings I could find online. (All my art history books are packed away.)

    Clearly, I haven’t found the painting yet, going for the artist first. I figure it must be from a genre painting or possibly a portrait of some noble, but probably not from a painting of a religious subject, a still life, or an allegory.

    Dutch vs. Flemish: I am unclear of the political entities at that time, so that is another quandary for me.

    Back to the hunt…
